6:03am
spblt for three weeks later. 20 days past the september 11th attacks and fbi isn't in benghazi, they're in tripoli, for security reasons they say, they say that the libyan security forces aren't providing them with security and some sort of visa problem. this is unheard of. so, senator bob corker and joe lieberman among others, they want answers from clapper about why it's happening. >> dave: to the point at that often times in the initial assessment it's often imprecise and incomplete. and as they've learned that they've shared with the congress and american public. as it has evolved, as the intelligence director has says we will let people know, but this has been evolving thing and often times unclear as my former boss says in the fog of battle. we're learning as we're given. >> alisyn: michelle, do you agree it's the fog of war that led people leak jay carney and tony schaeffer made on our program yesterday, he's worked with the fbi, some of the toughest and highly technically trained individuals on the planet. comfortable going into hostile zones like benghazi, it must not be an internal reason, it must be someone else they can't go in. >> clayton: bee seeds the tactffac tactffac fact-- besides the fact that libya is a free country and not the hot son that-- susan rice to say it's as the result of a ridiculous movie trailer? >> if this wasn't for political reasons it's out of sheer incompetence. and to cover up solyndra and fast and furious, misinformation for political purposes. so the question we have to ask is did they do this out of incompetence or are they liars? >> that's a good question, penny, even just yesterday, james clapper, the director of
6:04am
as it's unfolding and discussions about james clapper on the show this morning, who is james clapper we'll taking a look at his record. he made headlines in 2010 when asked about that london terrorist attack by diane sawyer and appeared he didn't know what had happened or unfolded. take a listen. >> london, how serious is it? any implications that it was coming here, and any of the things they have seen coming office of national intelligence came out and said, look, this was sort of our fault. we didn't have all the information right way way. however, witnesses on the ground, they seemed to know it was a terrorist attack and as we now know the white house internally labeled it as a terror attack and they knew there were the al-qaeda off shoots, may have been preparing stuff for september 11th. is this a failure of intelligence? here? >> and-- i was surprised you didn't know about london, director clapper. >> oh, i'm sorry, i didn't. >> and that was, by the way, hours after the news had been reporting it. >> clearly some break down among communication and his staff. something else interesting about james clapper, is that he is at 47 years in intelligence, so he has a >> again, let us go back. there's a lot of different informati information, and in a responsible manner and go out-- the president, i'll remind everybody, the president the day after in his statement from the rose garden said, he believes this to be an act of terror. so, they did have some ideas, but they didn't have the full and complete picture and once they did, then they've been able to go and make sure that-- to assure the american people what is taking place and as you know, you can't go out
6:05am
sterling record in terms of his years of public service and intelligence. however, as you may recall, the director of national intelligence, that was created after september 11th because on september 11th there were all of these disparity spy agencies that weren't communicating with each other and they hadn't connected the dots and they're going to find one person, one office that will help us all communication and that's not happened. >> dave: it really has not. and the central figure arguably in the unravelling of there in the initial couple hours and make a declarative statement if you don't know all the facts and they've been willing to wait, to assess, and make sure the intelligence they were getting was accurate. yes, in the first couple of hours, as i said that they believed because of the uprising in cairo and some other areas that they weren't unsure, exactly what-- once they did, they'll continue to bring the justice to bear, to continue to provide the intelligence on the ground in the sense that then, but to go back and call that, may be clapper. because it wasn't just not knowing about that plot that was unfolding in london. another one back in 2011 when he gave the idea to congress and therefore to thenation, that gaddafi had two big too technically trained to overcome in that civil war and obviously did not happen and gadda them liars, those are strong, strong words. >> but, the premise, the premise this whole time, still gathering and conducting investigation, why are they so enthusiastically pointing to the video. susan rice did it, obama spent a lot of times in the u.n. speech talking about the video and the-- the state department has been updated. >> alisyn: hold on penny, go ahead, finish. >> the state department paid to go across the air,

6:07am
intelligence. meanwhile, your headlines. overnight, an american soldier and an american contractor has been killed in eastern afghanistan during what appears to be another insider attack. and this happened at a check point after some kind of misunderstanding. these deaths bring the number of people killed in afghanistan since the war began to 2000. the u.s. supreme court preparing to return to the bench for a crucial new term tomorrow. the nine justices will be it's amazing we've made it this far. maybe it's because when one of us messes up, someone else comes along to help out. that's the thing about humans. when things are at their worst, we're at our best. see how at libertymutu.com. liberty mutual insurance -- responsibility. what's your policy? droid does. and does it launch apps by voice while learning your voice ? making decisions, and chief justice john roberts the deciding vote that upheld president obama's health care law and sparked debate across the country. and keys to the city sold, locks smith sold a ring to an undercover reporter. a dream come true to potential launch cab4me. droid does. keep left at the fork. does it do turn-by-turn navigation ? droid does. with verizon, america's largest 4g lte network, and motorola, droid does. get $100 off select motorola 4g lte smartphones like the droid razr. and every day since, two years ago, the people of bp made a commitment to the gulf. we've worked hard to keep it. bp has paid over twenty-three billion dollars
6:08am
terrorists, elevators, open subway gates, and access to 1 world trade center, he reportedly stole them for a measley 150 bucks and reported will i still has more keys he's trying to sell. well, miss one school lunch payment and you get the hard boiled egg special. that's the new rule at a new jersey school district. a student at two schools owes to help people and businesses who were affected, and to cover cleanup costs. today, the beaches and gulf are open for everyone to enjoy -- and many areas are reporting their best tourism seasons in years. we've shared what we've learned with governments and across the industry so we can all produce energy more safely. i want you to know, there's another commitment bp takes just as seriously: our commitment to america. bp supports nearly two-hundred-fifty thousand jobs in communities across the country. 3.10. they only get a hard bold egg, crackers and carton of milk for lunch, instead of a full meal. that was not announced until the first day of classes, they've not yet commented. >> alisyn: i think that's great, a great punishment. >> dave: yeah, you'd probably take that punishment. >> alisyn: i could happily-- >> and nothing worse, i mean, hard boiled eggs. and i don't like within 12 feet. >> alisyn: breakfast, hard boiled egg, sounds good. we hired three thousand people just last year. bp invests more in america than in any other country. in fact, over the last five years, no other energy company has invested more in the us than bp. we're working to fuel america for generations to come. today, our commitment to the gulf, and to america, has never been stronger.
6:09am
>> horrible. you have the mayonnaise. >> i snuck it to my wife in this chicken salad sandwich, i'm hungry, i'll eat it. >> dave: nasty. the debate on wednesday, the first presidential debate and likely hearing a lot from the vice-presidents because they will be the ones on the campaign trail while the big guys are at home prepping for the debate. and enter paul ryan talking about guns and religion out on the campaign trail. alluding to something president obama then running as a candidate said back in 2008. clayton, remember this one. >> clayton: here is his rebuttal to that saying he in fact would be clinging to this, take a listen. >> people have been beaten down and they feel betrayed by government.
6:10am
>> so ball ryan out on the campaign trail yesterday reminded someone of that moment when candidate obama said that and he gave his rebuttal. >> you know, sometimes when the president is speaking he kind of reveals his thoughts, his little more candid moments. remember that video where he >> welcome back, everyone, i know you're clamoring for your headlines and here they are. amazing video out of japan as a typhoon destroys everything in its path. 50 people were hurt and thousands of peoples are without power in okinawa. the storm is expected to hit tokyo later tonight. gm is recalling more than 40,000 cars, a part can crack and cause a possible fuel leak. the recall affects five models of cars between 2007 and 2009. was talking to the donors in san francisco and he said, people like us in the midwest, we get bitter and we cling to our guns and our religion. well, you know what i have to say? this catholic deer hunter is guilty as charged and i'm proud of that fact. and this is-- that's the kind -- that's what problem is. >> clayton: that was paul ryan out on the campaign trail yesterday and to dave's point the major candidates are under lock and key preparing for the debat preps. let's go over. >> clayton: thanks, paying taxes and regulations, and none of them are needed? that's why small business owners are forced to close shop across the country. >> dave: one county legislator is taking a stand and urging counties across the country to do the same. joining us now is new york suffolk county 10th district legislator and former small business owner himself. good morning. >> good morning. >> dave: there are fees being loaded on to bests and
6:11am
and in hotels locked in with the debate preps and vice-president joe biden on the campaign trail as well and saying in his response that president obama was dealing with the economy in way and once again blamed president bush for the faulty economy that he was handed. >> alisyn: there you go. paul ryan still out on the campaign trail, he talks about his view of if president obama wins a second term and i think he used the word shudder, it would make him shudder. >> i shudder as a gun owner, restrictions. and making it difficult to open a small business across the country. >> right. >> dave: you're going to cite a specific example that happened down in florida, a perfect example how government is getting in the way. tell us about that. >> that's right, we're trying to bring this attitude up to new york. okay, so, there's a regulatory ignorance and arrogance, which is pervasive throughout local governments, state governments, especially here in new york where it's incredibly difficult to be a business person and throughout the country. seeing his record when he was in the united states senate, what would he do if he never has to face the voters ever again? the next president will appoint a lot of different judges and these are lifetime appointments. if you want to make sure that judges respect our 2nd amendment rights you need a president who respects those rights as well. >> dave: in the president's defense he has not touched gun legislation in any way, shape or form, but of course the one example is impact assessment fee. this is a fee where government says to a business owner, you're investing your life savings, you're borrowing from your family and taking all kinds of risks and pay additional taxes and we also want you to spend money to improve public infrastructure in addition to everything that you have to do to make your own business success. >> so like the great south bay brewery, one of these situations in a perfect example, maybe you saw the straw that broke the camel's
6:12am
fear is, from paul ryan and folks, if you give him four terms-- another term, four years, unchecked without having to face this, maybe he'll touch gun legislation. there's been no indication of that in the last three years of yet. >> alisyn: and he's saying what candidate obama said in 2008 reveals his true thinking about it. >> dave: and that was of course at a private fundraiser with a camera he didn't realize was there. >> alisyn: when will we learn. back. $35,000 for infrastructure fees, crosswalks, traffic lights. what does that have to do with the business itself. >> exactly right. this was in anticipation of some future level of success. so, the business owner never expected to create pedestrian traffic for his business, he's invested $300,000 of his money. >> wait, it's a brewery. let's be clear. >> there's a tasting room, but you're not going to have droves of people walking across the street to a tasting room. >> not a whole lot of >> clayton: the 47% comment. that's where that came from. >> alisyn: in other words, phones now have cameras on them? >> shocking, it really is. >> alisyn: and getting this this-- >> it's hard to believe. >> alisyn: coming up did the white house intentionally hide information on those deadly attacks at the u.s. consulate in libya for political reasons? we are going to debate that next. >> dave: small businesses and thousands of jobs dying because of a simple fee, a big one. one lawmaker is pushing for a change and he's here to tell strollers that-- >> not strollers, especially when you have bars in town. so, you know, this guy builds his buildings, he's developed the property and somewhere down the road, county government says, wait, we need you to put in a new traffic signal or a new crosswalk, and it's going to cost you $35,000. . >> that's unbelievable. so, not only are they putting fees in place like this, that that is an obstacle in opening a new business, but shouldn't
6:13am
us about it again. ♪ [ female announcer ] they can be enlightening. government be saying, here is why you should be with business, and lowering the obstacles, shouldn't it be the opposite? >> that's my opinion. >> yeah. >> you know, having been in business for many years, prior to elective office, i understand what it takes to run a business and you know, folks who are in business are subject to tremendous challenges. and not only in the economy itself, but through government. so, government should be asking these, should be welcoming these businesses and not putting up road blocks. >> so, you've-- >> on that point you've then introduced legislation, to absorb the fees. >> i have a bill i'm sponsoring that would eliminate the fees and prevent government from bureaucratically deciding when these fees are necessary and when they're not necessary. there are certain exceptions, particularly when it comes to large developments. you wouldn't want wal-mart, for example, building a store on a main street without
6:14am
hey, bro. or engaging. asking them to do some work, but for the small businesses we're going to eliminate the fees and hopefully i'll be able to convince my colleagues to support this. >> dave: small businesses need it more than ever. thank you for being with us. >> my pleasure. >> clayton: coming up on the show, a murder for hire plot unveiled. a high school teacher accused of trying to get his co-worker killed. the incriminating phone calls we'll play for you straight ahead. >> dave: a former tsa worker says the real reason he stole almost a million dollars worth of stuff from passengers, he didn't get paid enough. details next. note night

>> 6:33. time for your show. vice-presidential republican paul ryan showing off the state spirit with fans on the battle ground face, and the h in the human sign and led the girls in a chant. o ohio. it's like wmca. >> alisyn: i get it. >> dave: if he went to ohio state, i think he went to
6:19am
miami of ohio and congratulations for a win over michigan state, they're double enthused. >> clayton: this is the key, learn the mistake, go into the different universities and campaign trail you've got to make sure you know the lingo and make sure you know the things. you do ent want to make the bob dole mistake, it's so good to be here in san francisco? and yelled back, no, you're in san jose. >> dave: well, the president did botch that ohio ymca. >> alisyn: he did. >> dave: i believe, yeah, but he got it right. he initially messed it up. and then they kind of corrected him and got him straight. >> alisyn: and that's-- trying to do the h first? >> you've got to do ymca, that's difficult. >> alisyn: not for me. i'm-- >> of disco era. >> alisyn: let's talk about the tsa. we reported yet another gun
6:20am
had snuck on to a plane in a carry on bag. well, here is an interesting story from a tsa agent about just how rampant theft is among the it. sa agents because there's a culture of complete lack of caring and lax oversight. >> clayton: and he said that thiefery was common to do and i don't get paid enough. take a listen. >> they didn't think it was okay, but they did it. and they ain't paying me, they're treating me wrong, they are he doing this and doing that. i just don't care. just didn't care, but then when people started seeing they could profit off of it, then become-- it became-- >> and a few weeks ago we reported on the show, in the pocket behind the seat very often people leave a kindle or an ipad. they're this then and slide right in the pocket and
6:21am
someone got off the plane and didn't have the ipad with them. turns out one of the folks on the plane actually took it home with them. took it home and they traced it to the house. >> dave: that's one thing, you left that on the plane. and i'm not defending, this is tsa, people supposed to be keeping us safe and pulling things from luggage and taught how to do it. >> clayton: if it's in plain sight and fallen out of the bag. >> dave: you can't carry it through. >> alisyn: so they're missing guns that are getting on to planes, but somehow their sticky fingers are finding the ipads and everything else. i mean, it's just, it's not obviously what they were hired to do. something has gone wrong with the culture and we had congressman john micah on the show yesterday to talk about how it's in desperate need of reform. >> obviously, these people are not trained. their equipment is not being operated properly, and then, these folks that are hired aren't even vetted properly.
6:22am
so, this is what we get. we need it get tsa reorganized and back to security and connecting the dots and conducting oversight setting standards. >> clayton: and the issues, too, the recruitment is terrible. they're recruiting on the top of pizza boxes for jobs, pizza boxes. >> dave: though there have been more than 300 agents fired for theft since 2003, i've met a lot of great ones that take special time with my kids and give them the stickers. >> clayton: he feel conflicted, a lot of great tsa fox viewers who love watching the show and do you get to lower standards? if you're a tsa agency, e-mail us, have they lowered the standards since you started there, have the recruitment policies changed. >> dave: a few bad apples, i don't know. >> alisyn: that's a great point, but oversight does seem to be a problem. let's get to your headlines. a florida teacher, high school teacher is accused of plotting
6:23am
to kill a former co-worker. the chilling phone calls recorded by the fbi, between james and the man he hired. >> let's listen. that was hard to understand. the fbi says it began investigating him after the friend he originally approached about the murder plot went to the police and say the target was another teacher at a high school where he used to work and the man said they barely knew each other. a daring rescue after a worker falls eight feet down a trench in arizona and the firefighters had to carefully squeeze down there, as the trench could collapse with any redwing movement and took about an hour to pull the man to safety and took the man to the hospital where he's said to be in a stable condition. inspiring end to a cruel prank played on a girl in michigan. whitney was picked to be on the homecoming court in high school and later found out she was voted in just as a joke.
6:24am
and students and community members rallied around here, donating her dress, and hair style and makeup. and she made her homecoming debut with an escort on to the field, and her father and grandfather. >> and kids are bullying, do not will et thm bring you down, stand up for what you believe in. go with your heart. >> alisyn: and students from the opposing school wore t-shirts in support of brittany. high school is brutal, isn't it. >> clayton: and see the story the past week on the news, a team of high school cheerleaders now, embracing kids with mental disabilities and making them part of the cheerleading squad and people in the stands are supporting the kids and-- >> and turning perhaps? huh? let's talk about sports. what an incredible game that took place on saturday afternoon, not easy folks

6:28am
back and you know, swing the imagery bat. >> alisyn: oh, my gosh. >> dave: i love that the commenttators did the play by play on the imagery swing. >> alisyn: oh, my gosh. >> dave: is that better than your bowling story. >> alisyn: no, when i was bowling, my bowling ball went into the gutter and then popped back out and knocked them down. out of the gutter, dave briggs. >> clayton: that might be better than the grand slam, i'm with you, high five, high five. let's check with maria molina checking the forecast. pretty good. >> good morning and good to see you, good morning, everyone, today talking about temperatures currently in the 50's across new york city so it's going to be a relatively cool day across the northeast and out across parts of the west. a different story with temperatures well above average for this time of the year, anywhere between 10 up to 20 pest above what's typical for this time of the year, so it actually feels like summer across portions of the west. otherwise, take a look at current temperatures, portions of the northern plains, it's going to be relatively cool early in the morning and heating up. 81 for the high temperature in rapid city, 78 in minneapolis

6:34am
in 2012 versus 41,000 in 2008, a reduction of 70%. what is happening? why are so few military members even requesting absentee ballots? >> with he will, you know, there are a lot of factors, but one of the primary factors, is the fact that the pentagon, small agency within the pentagon is supposed to help service members, didn't implement a key law back in, that was passed back in 2009, that was supposed to provide greater assistance to our service members. but as you point out, there's still time, time to increase these numbers and we are doing our best to make sure that our service members are able to register and request absentee ballots and heroes note.cock, there's time, but they need to move quickly. >> clayton: why didn't the pentagon implement that key measure that would have helped. >> dave: that's a good question and obviously, there are a lot of questions that

should be asked, after the election when, you know, the congressional members get back in session. right now we have to do everything in our power to make sure our service members register, request absentee ballot. go to heroes vote.org, it takes a couple of minutes and their spouses can do it, too, fill out the application online, print it off, mail it, send it in and now what, if they get in the mail by monday they should have their ballot in 7 to 10 days. >> dave: we talked about them counting and they neat their ballots. heroes vote.org you've got to have your voice heard somewhere, and thank you, put it on twitter and the website. >> appreciate it, thank you, thank you very much. >> alisyn: coming up will the millennials help keep president obama in office? he says yes, because they're selfish.

>> welcome back. in 2008, millennials, came out in droves to cast their vote for president obama. will they do the same thing this time around? our next guest says yes, they are a generation of wanting more free stuff much joining me is a millennial, steven crowder, what is millennial first of all. >> i was using my phone and people my age, probably about early mid 20's, and the general age range, and first range, late 80's, through early 2000's, depends who you ask. >> clayton: we have a new gallup poll out, this is interesting on millenials and how they'll fall in line perhaps for prol, president
6:40am
obama. and for president obama 58% and you framed it this way, that they are selfish and that's why they're going to vote for president obama. why is that? >> sure, most people are selfish, not singling out millennials. we tend to vote in our self-interest and tend to vote the occupy movement for more free crap not based on the constitutional parameters of government, but found principles, but what the government can give them and because they're voting that way, they're doing it wrong. >> clayton: so health care, number one, a lot of people saying in that age range of 26 years old now on their parents' health care plan because of obama care, you think that could be a big factor? >> and the way to buy someone's vote in the short-term. if you have zero self-respect it's nice to mooch off your parents until 26. after that when you pay your own way, health care costs have gone up over $4,000 and premiums up over 3%.

6:42am
want it save. interest rates are being low aren't necessarily bad. they're not good when they are he an artificially kept low for a long period of time. if banks aren't lending, you want to save, you're not going to get a lot of interest on the savings and your dollar is devalued at the end of the day if young millennials want to vote for more free crap, occupiers, and from young people, if you're going to vote for free birth control or obama phones over things like a financially stable social security or a viable health care system, you're doing it wrong. >> clayton: with an about the other argument i've read, which is these folks, these millennials, actually believe in the positions of the president and believe in pro choice, believe in his stance on gay marriage and they think that way and therefore they'll vote that way. >> and ask ebenezer scrooge, and they believe in, but a merry christmas. if you're a millennial you have to completely and totally deny the last four years, if

6:47am
that's what freedom is. >> dave: plus, why he, quote, shoulders at the thought of four more obama years. >> clayton: and parents, listen up. you could be endangering your child right now. put down the smart phone. a shocking new study that says it's hurting your kids when you're using your cell phone and this isn't just one of those trend stories that are actually happening. we'll talk about it. "fox & friends" hour two starts right now. ♪ this isn't one of trend stories, cell phones are making us dumber because we're doing this. no, this is actually true and it could actually endanger your child's life the way in which the parents are using their cell phones. >> alisyn: i believe it. we want to auk about that. meanwhile, let's talk about why our fbi is still not in benghazi. they were sent to libya to be on the ground to investigate this, what some call act of
6:48am
war, what happened at our consulate and the death of four americans and they still have not made it into benghazi. smart bob corker sent a letter yesterday to the head of national intelligence to say what is going on? why can't our best intelligence officers get answers. >> alisyn:. >> clayton: along with senator joe lieberman. to your point, this was a crime scene and having our own reporters tell us that it was open, people were walking into this crime scene at this consulate building and able it pick up the former ambassador's diary, the journal and walk out with this information. how does something like that happen at a u.s. consulate building. >> dave: it's clear that congress wants more anticipates from the statement we read you from james clapper's office that basically took the blame for the fumbling or the evolution of the facts. and why did it vary so much,
6:49am
and i think there are questions what does the immediate aftermath mean. fox news, yahoo! news and television networks confirmed in the 24 hours following the incident where chris stevens was killed, our u.s. intelligence community labeled it a terrorist attack, as did other officials and intelligence communities around the world. so what is clopper referring to when he says the immediate aftermath. >> alisyn: a great point. and by the way, senator corker's point, is how can it be so dangerous three weeks after the attack that our fbi can't get in there, whereas right before the attack, we didn't -- we hadn't beefed up security before september 11th. if we thought it was safe around around september 11th not to have beefed up security, why now, three weeks later, there are no active protests. >> dave: and there are journalists enough. >> and able to take jogs on the consulate, take jogs ahead of this.
6:50am
there are a lot of questions that need answer and i hope the congress doesn't get pushback as they try to uncover this. >> dave: ahead of the first presidential debate that comes wednesday in denver, the obama campaign reportedly sending out a group of former bain employees, bain capital to go after mitt romney's business record. >> clayton: peter doocy live in washington d.c. with the details. this short of worked for president obama earlier in the summer, trying to paint mitt romney this way with bain ads. will this work? we'll have to see. >> reporter: we do have to wait and see and the economy is set to be the topic of wednesday's presidential debate and mitt romney is going to try it tout his record at bain capital for a reason to pick him. the democrats are trying to peck up people who used to work bain capital, and a part of the election season, he was
6:51am
featured on a conference call with the now infamous, joe southic, a former employer of a bain company that later on claimed that mitt romney indirectly killed his wife and mitt romney deputy campaign manager stephanie cutter claemd not to remember and we also heard from mr. foster at the democrat national convention earlier this month. >> bain took over the bill, they loaded it up with millions in debt and within months, they used some of that money to millions, within a decade the debt kept growing and was so large the company was forced into bankruptcy. . >> as it turns out, mr. foster was actually regional director for the steel workers union who worked with gst steel, but not at gst steel and as there are two sides to every story. one former executive at gst
6:52am
steel says that what really happened when bain capital came in is quite different than the way that mr. foster just described it. >> there's-- the vampire story that bain comes in and shows its teeth and sucks the blood out of the operation. it was the opposite of that. we went looking for a blood donor and bain came in and actually shall the way i look at it, gave us a bit of a transfusion. >> reporter: the three employees enlisted by the obama campaign are going to appear in sweng states this coming week, ohio, florida and wisconsin, back to you in new york. >> clayton: oh, boy, the dirtness not over yet, 36 days left now. >> alisyn: i've lost track. >> clayton: get out your abacus, receipt n-- right now, president obama and mitt romney are behind closed doors and doing debate prep and rob portman doing the debate prep for mitt romney has been going after him, really, really tough and governor, trying to throw him off and get him agitated, but
6:53am
the vice-presidential candidates are out, they're basically doing the campaigning right now. >> alisyn: they're in some battle ground states and vice-president biden was in florida, whereas so was paul ryan, right, in florida. >> dave: in ohio, i believe. >> alisyn: in ohio. he was in ohio and he reminded his ohio audience about something that candidate obama said about guns and religion back in 2008. let's listen to obama back then. >> people have been beaten down they feel (inaudible) >> that was of course, the candidate at a san francisco fundraiser, talking about the people in i think, western pennsylvania that cling to their guns and religion and
6:54am
that's something that paul ryan brought back up on the campaign trail on saturday. he is appealing to those gun owners, listen. >> you know, sometimes when the president is speaking he kind of reveals his thoughts, these little more candid moments. remember the video where he was talking to the donors in san francisco and said people like us in the midwest, we get bitter and we cling to our guns and our relegs. well, you know what i have to say, this catholic deer hunter is guilty of that and i'm proud of that fact. that's what freedom is. >> meanwhile, vice-president joe biden out on the campaign trail also going on the attack and going back to blaming bush, but also pointing out that congressman paul ryan voted for some thingses' now criticizing, listen to vice-president biden on the attack. >> the last time they were, congre
6:55am
congressman ryan and governor romney all the things that were done last time around. last time around, what caused this national debt. how did this all of a sudden happen when clinton left we had a balanced budget and a surplus and things were looking good. >> of course the romney campaign points to the rising deficit, accelerated deficit rising under president obama as compared to the george w. bush years. >> dave: from george w. bush and not free from criticism. 4.9 trillion dollar increase in the nation's debt. but here we are three years into the obama presidency talking 5.36 trillion dollar increase in our nation's debt. that's pretty simple to fact check. i'm surprised joe biden continues to bait those fact checkers, with statements like that. that's a pretty-- that's a slam-dunk. >> alisyn: because people don't listen to his speeches
6:56am
with the calculator out and listen with their guts and resonates. they have been saying the same thing for the better part of almost four years so it must be working on the campaign trail with them. >> dave: and doing some hypnotizing before that. stare into the pen. >> alisyn: all right. let's get to your headlines, because, to tell you about right now. there was another insider attack that claimed the life of a soldier and contractor. 2000 american troops killed in afghanistan sense the war began. iran's president ahmadnejad says threats mean nothing, and the u.s. does not allow iran the action or even if someone takes action against iran he will not change the country's policy and even expired it to

fdic and author of the book "senseless panic" how washington failed america, william isaac, nice to see you this morning, welcome to the show. >> great to be with you. >> clayton: we heard of dodd frank as an effort to protect us from having to worry about bailouts again. did it work? >> i think that dodd-frank was basically an efforts by members of the congress who voted for tarp to protect themselves in the election. i don't think it was a serious effort at reform. it heaped 2500 pages of new statutory provisions and probably 10 or 20,000 new pages of regulations on top of the community banks. and it's going to lead to more concentration, in the banking system, and more and more of our banking systems going to be in fewer and fewer hands and it's going to really hurt the community banking sector which is where the small business loans are made, not all of them, but most of them. i don't think dodd-frank is effective at all. i think it's overkill.
7:03am
and entirely unnecessary. >> clayton: and one of the things it was meant to prevent was picking winners and losers, right? hey, you know, this large bank, bank of america, wells fargo, citigroup, a large institution that they're not free from being allowed to fail in the future, but has that happened or has that occurred under dodd-frank? >> no, we really needed serious regulatory reform. and dodd-frank did none of that. we need to fix the regulatory system which is way too politicized and spread out over way too many agencies, we need it as consolidation of the regulators, needed more stronger, more effective regulation and we haven't done that, we haven't brought market discipline to bear on large national institutions, we have more assets of the banking system held in fewer hands and the five largest banks in the nation, clayton, control over 50% of the
7:04am
banking assets. when the next crisis comes, and there will be another crisis, because we haven't fixed the problems that led to the last crisis, when the next crisis comes, i don't know when that's going to be, there's no question that the government will bail out the largest banks, we have, we really have no choice because we have so much of the banking system in so few hands and you can't let them fail e it sounds like an outrage here, exactly the type of they think we don't want to have happen. is it because the administration is picking winners and losers or is it because of politicians at large generally have bankers in their back pocket, bank role their campaigns? what is the issue here? >> i'm not quite sure what the issue is, except that i do think dodd-frank they wanted something passed, anything as quickly as possible so they could tell the public they were sorry about tarp. i was strongly opposed to tarp. it was unnecessary, did more harm than good and he think
7:05am
that the politicians wanted to atone themselves to the public so they pushed through this bill which wouldn't have prevented the last crisis, won't prevent the next one. it don't fix the system and doesn't end too big to fail. we need reform, if we're truly going to have too big to fail. >> clayton: and sense and congress go hand in hand. the former chair of the fdic and the book "senseless panic". >> thank you, clayton. a former tsa worker says the real reason he stole one million dollars worth of stuff from the passengers, he didn't get paid enough. and how safe are you on the rail. a shocking report says that amtrak workers are failing drug and alcohol tests. ♪ does your phone give you all day battery life ?

7:22am
attention, deaths due to drowning and detrimental to see the kids on the smart phone when are' not with them and present, and psychologically. >> alisyn: that part is true, i try to put it away at home and at home, but our playground, oh. >> dave: well, hopefully you're not all-- give us good stories of times you may have been buried in the phone, not grim things, but something silly may have happened, a bump and a bruise, something like that e we'll talk about it later on the show. >> alisyn: to your headlines because new hope for families of victims of 9/11. the new york post reports the city forensic scientists will use a new tool to try to identify new remains, can take dna from bone fragments and identify person's eye and skin color. that's incredible. right now can only determine the sex. 1,120 remains still have not been identified. experts hope that soon they will be able to narrow down

7:31am
london fighting on behalf of jihad. and looked confused, london? giving no evidence at all. apparently never heard of it. abc news is on top of it. fox is on top of it. if you don't recall, here is james clapper and diane sawyer. >> london, how serious is it? any indication it's coming here, any of the things that they have seen were coming here? >> (inaudible) i'm a little surprised you didn't know about london. >> oh, i'm sorry, i didn't. >> dave: that's of course the problem about communication and coordination, because the director of national intelligence was really brought in to coordinate the intelligence agencies. clearly that was not happening and he had a mississippi --
7:32am
mistake regarding gaddafi. >> at the high point between the conflict of gaddafi and the rebel forces in libya and clapper weighed in, we believe that gaddafi is going to win. gaddafi was killed and didn't win. and when the director of the intelligence of the united states makes a public statement about an outcome he perceives will happen he's putting american prestige on the line. it's not good just that we have good intelligence, but the rest of the world believes we have intelligence. but when he reveals he's ignorant what happened in london and what might happen to gaddafi, it devalues the perception of american strength. that's a dangerous thing, you do not want to be perceived by your enemies around the world not knowing what's going on. it's incompetent. there are really costs. >> dave: perception is reality in some of the cases, in

february of 2011, clapper called the egypt branch of the muslim brotherhood, largely secular, but it's the muslim brotherhood. we know, kathyrn herridge confirmed that our u.s. intelligence community did know it's an act of terrorism as did libya and others around the world. so, do you believe that they really didn't know it? it's hard to know what to make of this statement. this is a guy that clearly had to know if others in the community knew it was an act of terrorism. what do you make of the statement on friday? >> it's easy to know, it wasn't simply director clapper's statement, it was statement of the press secretary, flak after flak, spokesman, acting on behalf of the obama administration and campaigns, and an organized talking point that was put out there for-- partly for political reasons and ideological reasons. no it's not a terrorist act which is to say we had no role in precipitating this, we're not responsible, a film i can

7:40am
>> alisyn: what do you think of this father admitting he has a favorite child. >> i think it's tremendously destructive to his younger child who he does not favor. and not only the child could grow up and find it on the internet and the guy is not self-reflective, why do i prefer one over the other. it is what it was, i like my partner in crime. secondly, if he's not reflective about this, let's be honest, this person, man, is probably trampling on the psyches and feelings of his kids all the time. >> alisyn: dr. ablow, it normal for a parent to feel more strongly or to prefer one child over another? >> it's absolutely normal to have a preference, right? most parents who do will reflect and think, well, what is it, gender, age? these qualities in my child? and share it, the same way
7:41am
you'd never share with your children, listen, there was this man i knew before your dad, i always wonder whether i should have been with him. what? you don't tell everything. that's, yeah, that would be bad. and that's the next thing. the bottom line, being an assault, being a parent means, yes, you withhold some of your feelings because you're not a nars sis narcissus, he says he was surprised by everything by the parents appalled by the blog. perhaps i'm too naive to think that my words will not one day be read by my children. i trust i will have a strong relationship with my kids. >> no, buzz, you're naive and insensitive and for your kids to balance the fact they may well fiend your blog in the future. here is this from dr. ablow.

7:50am
there are numerous journalists but why is the f.b.i., some of the toughest guys in the world, i'm certain they handled hot situations there, why are they not there now? is james clapper being forthright and honest here. was this evolve or did they know immediately within a 24-hour period as yahoo knew and other sources have confirmed. they knew right away this was terrorist attack. >> or is this a larger narrative it could be the case because the narrative that september 11th and we are secure as a nation now. therefore, we don't want to put forth this idea, yes, we were hit in another terrorist attack that was coordinated on september 11th. we'll move past it. so the obama administration over the past four years has labeled terrorist attacks in just the interestingly, other phrases and
7:51am
given other names to terrorist attacks. >> alisyn: let's go through it. fort hood, fort hood attack happened on november 5th, as you may called that workplace violence. it was not until i believe janet napolitano came out and said she believed that that was extremist terrorism, they changed their tune. but first, it was workplace violence. >> he trained with anwar al-awlaki and that clearly makes it a terrorist attack and 13 people were killed at fort hood. >> alisyn: it goes on. you remember the christmas day attempted bombing of the plane, underwear bombing. he was called an isolated extremist. that was the first thing they called him. later it was revealed that he was working in con certain with al-qaeda. he had gotten supplies from an al-qaeda offshoot and training,
7:52am
similarly with the times square bomber, that was initially described as a one-off. >> a lone wolf. he was operating on his own and he wasn't motivated by anything and we know he was inspired by anwar al-awlaki and he was trained by taliban. so at what point do you begin to label something terrorism? >> biggest question is why, why do you fear labeling these terrorist twists, why? what is the goal of the administration? some same it's appeasement. on the other hand, obama administration has six times the drone strikes during bush's eight years. four times estimated deaths through drone strikes as bush's eight years. he is clearly not appeasing them on foreign soil. he is wiping them on off the face of the planet.
7:53am
>> alisyn: senator joe lieberman is the chair of the homeland security committee and is calling for this investigation said his personal pet peeve when people in the administration will not label something terrorism, why not just call it what it is. he is the person that held janet napolitano's feet to the fire and this is extremist terrorism and she said, indeed. >> dave: latest incident in benghazi had something to do with the film to that mocked the prophet muhammad. we heard about that dozens of times from the administration including highlighted in the speech to the world the address to the u.n. >> let us know what you think about this. do you think it's a larger narrative to make us feel more safe. >> dave: maybe that is what it is. >> go to foxnews.com and we are

presidential candidates are out doing the campaigning. what sorts of things does mitt romney need to say on wednesday did you get from paul ryan? does he have to get real zingers in there or does he need to play it cool? >> chris: i think it's a combination of both. we sat down for half an hour on yesterday, on saturday on new hampshire on the campaign trail with paul ryan. that is our exclusive interview on fox news sunday. first question, what does romney need to do. he has to appraise clear choice. what makes that so interesting up till now the campaign, romney campaign has been talking about as a referendum on barack obama's record. it was all about his record and say that romney was a credible alternative. i think they feel that is not enough. particularly when you get into a debate with one on one.
8:00am
what they want to do as a contrast. it will be a strong contrast saying that one, obama has for the last four years run the country, run the economy in terms of government centered, more intervention, higher taxes, more regulation, they think that hasn't worked. that is one of the reasons the recovery has been so tef pid and romney would do less regulations and pull the government out of things like healthcare and government interference and they think that would uchb leash the private sector. it will be a contrast. i think -- it's a tough thing. it's a tough needle that romney has to thread. somebody said, he has to be aggressive, that he has to be nice. he has to be aggressive taking the fight but he can't look mean. >> dave: as a former debate coach of john mccain, i believe.
8:01am
debates are substance style is style over substance. game changes. do they come down to mannerisms, how you say thing or personality? >> a combination. i think that any challenger just benefits from being on the same stage. to the agree you think he is the president and the other guy isn't. when you see the two of them on the stage, it automatically lifts the challenger to make it look he hat the same stature as the president. first of all if you plan too much with one liners, they are ready to do it. they know what each side is going to do. obviously you can see it. you have been talking earlier today about the obama people trotting out some of those bain employees that were laid off. their basic argument is going to be that he rich guy who is going
8:02am
to take us back to the policies of george w. bush. he was more interested in protecting the wealthy. romney's challenge to say why his policies which include tax cuts why they would help the middle-class. he has to show that his plan will actually help the middle-class. >> alisyn: wednesday night's debate is supposed to focus on domestic policy. given everything that has happened in libya. can they throw that out and interject national security into all of that? >> chris: that would be a precedent. first debate four years ago was supposed to be foreign policy and that was just after the meltdown of lehman brothers. jim hehr asked some domestic policy questions. it's not moderator jail if you make a mistake.

[ laughter ] >> i have a lot to say. >> we talked about this yesterday on the show. perhaps this media bias and perhaps this is something else. which is this benghazi attack. what unfolded with james clapper and response from what happened in libya. if this were george w. bush and it happened on his watch, how would the media have covered it differently? >> right i'll go you one better. what if it were jimmy carter. it's as if you were living in two different worlds. i go to some of the other
9:11am
channels, mitt romney made another game changing gaffe today. we are living in different world it would be jimmy carter, they would be hiding a hostage crisis. we're going to talk about ronald reagan. msnbc, they converted the scott brown, our beloved scott brown versus elizabeth warren that she checked off falsely that she is cherokee. she has the lowest requirements of any professor of any of the top law schools. she refuses to release that information. everyone knows she stole someone else's. she is -- he is being attacked to raise the issue. he is attacking for her being a cherokee. no. it's exactly the opposite. it's about not being a cherokee
9:12am
and she is related not to cherokee but to a white enforcer to trail of tears. she is stealing the suffering of native americans to teach from harvard law school and you wouldn't know that from listening to msnbc. >> your book is you say, how liberals have played the race card historically you believe to win black voters? >> for a hundred years they denounced black people to win a segment of the white vote,. now, they are still using race to win votes not only from black people. keep telling them republicans hate them but from white people who don't want to feel racist. it isn't any white guilt on their part. when they say america is racist country. they don't mean they are racist,
9:13am
they mean you are racist. >> and ladies on the view. what is your take away from that? >> i love those crazy gals. i realize for one reason i write a book is to disprove myths everyone believes. everything they said is what the "new york times" believes. the "new york times" won't argue with me. no one on msnbc will argue with me. it was a terrific interview because i got to say a lot of things. >> alisyn: so how can you write a book about racism? >> when i sat down, more of most of my interviews. it's not a book about black people. it's about book about white liberal media. i wanted to get it out quickly before the election because they are protecting obama not because liberals care about the historic
9:14am
nature of the first black president. republicans have put more blacks and more competent blacks. he happens to be most liberal policies by calling them racist. >> it will be interesting joy behar and whoo pi goldberg reig your book on a beach. >> ann coulter thank you for being here. >> coming up on the show, before the presidential debate. sending out bain employees how the touted attack mitt romney. a report from washington next to these guys. >> alisyn: is your addiction to your cellphone hurt your children? a shocking new study coming right up. ♪ ♪

homes and safer playgrounds, but now doctors are seeing a troubling trend over the past three years, kids' injuries rising as a result perhaps of parents being distracted when their kids are at play because they are sitting around playing on their smart phones. >> alisyn: that is one of theories. kids under five years old, injuries have increased by 12%. i think we all, if we nor the guilty of it. >> think we all our. >> alisyn: while your kids are playing over there you are busy texting, sending e-mails, looking at the ipad. reading the newspaper on the ipad. so we're present but we are not engaged. >> dave: we do it in the name of multi-tasking. is this dangerous if is it like texting while driving. would you play with kids more if i-kids were stamped on their

9:21am
business record. >> peter doocy has all the details. >> reporter: that is right. obama campaign is trying to get out in front of mitt romney on the issue of his record at bain capital by rolling out a few former employees at companies that were owned by bain capital. one of those employees, david foster has played a minor role in a major story this election season because he was featured in a conference call in may, with a man that mitt romney indirectly killed his wife. this is the deputy campaign manager not to remember when confronted with questions about joe's back story. mr. foster is going to hit the trail in ohio. we heard a little bit of his story about the bain controlled gst steel mill at dnc a few weeks ago. >> when romney at bain took over the mill, they laden it up with
9:22am
millions in debt. within months, they used some of that borrowed money to pay themselves millions. within a decade the debt kept growing and so large the company was forced into bankruptcy. >> reporter: as it turns out he was a regional director for the steel workers union who worked with gst steel but he didn't work at gst steel. as there are two sides to every story, one former executive at gst steel says what really happened when bain came in is quite different than what you heard mr. foster describe it. >> the vampire story that bain came in and showed the teeth, but it was really entirely the opposite for that. bain came in and the way i looked at it gave us a bit of a transfusion. >> reporter: so ohio, wisconsin

memorable moments of past presidential debates. here the top three. here is frank luntz. do you think we'll see any of those big moments on wednesday night that define the campaign? >> that is the key. it's not the issues and numbers. voters remember specific phrases that candidates put together at key moments. now, the most important aspect has got to appear candid and got to touch people to make it memorable. let's take the first one. ronald reagan, 1981 presidential impact and had a huge impact. >> next tuesday, you will go to the polls and stand there in the polling place and make a decision. i think when you make that decision you need to ask yourself, are you better off than you were four years ago. is it easier for you to go and

such circumstances? >> not at all. also i will not make age an issue of this campaign. i'm not going to exploit for political purposes my president obama's youth and inexperience.

jensen saved her mom life. she joins us now with her mom and dispatcher jill submitted. >> you suffer from lupus and sometimes you can have debilitating symptoms. what happened a week ago in your home that caused olivia to have to call 911? >> i had not been feeling well for several days. i had been running a fever on and off for about a week and had been diagnosed with an infection a day before, all the things that can contribute to a lupus flare and had planned spending the day on the couch watching the bears. when i went up to do something, use the restroom -- i can't remember -- i just instantly
9:39am
went straight to the floor. it was a massive surge of pain in up the back of my spine and back of my head. >> alisyn: what did olivia do at that moment? >> first i tried to speak to her. because i was on my knees with head and hands on the love seat. she was the one no came to me and said, those aren't words, mom. i tried to get up again i went to the floor. i ended up with my head on the floor. she calls grandma. >> alisyn: let me bring in olivia. if you can hear me. >> she probably does. i didn't know she called grandma rooms.
9:40am
>> how did you know what to do when your mom was hurt? >> because she, um, wasn't speaking to me. >> alisyn: yes, and you knew that was bad. as we understand it, you had been practicing in case there was ever an emergency. jill, i want to bring you, you were on the receiving end of this phone call. how do you know when a phone call comes in from little kid if it's even serious? >> we have to quickly assess the situation if it is an emergency or child practicing calling 911. we had to determine what the emergency was and olivia my her address and phone number. i had to determine whether it was crime scene or domestic. whether there was another adult around in case emergency
9:41am
measures such as cpr were needed. >> alisyn: so you knew this one was serious. how did you train olivia to know how to caught 911 and to know what to say and know all the right things to do? >> i didn't train her on what to say. what had happened that day. i don't think i could have ever taught her that type of composure that heard later on the tape. as soon as she was able to recognize numbers and match books with pictures when she was about three years old. after giving birth to her i had been diagnosed with lupus but i have been struggling for the past five years. her and i alone in the home.
